The Royal We by Heather Cocks & Jessica Morgan

Hi, Sweetums! I should warn you that I'm about to gush!

I just finished The Royal We by Heather Cocks & Jessica Morgan. To say it was unputdownable is an understatement.

Cornell college student Bex Porter decides to do an exchange program at Oxford one semester and when she arrives on campus who should open the door to her new life but Steve Prince Nick. Bex didn't come to Oxford in hopes of finding love, she came for the adventure and the art. What she finds instead is something so much more.

Let me start by saying that I love princess books. From The Princess Diaries to The Runaway Princess to the Royal Wedding Series, I can't get enough.

The Royal We did not disappoint with its lively and well developed characters. It's British backdrop and truthful narrator gave it the feel of having a chat with your bestie over a cup of tea. I stayed up late and got up early so that I could keep reading. I didn't want this book to end. But it didn't disappoint, even until…

Vision in White (Bride Quartet, Book 1) by Nora Roberts

I had not read anything by Nora Roberts, but when I read my planned book for my recent vacation in about 24-hours, I found Vision in White (Bride Quartet, Book 1) on the bookshelf of our vacation rental. I read this in a day as well. It was a fun read and I'm hoping to get to the next books in the series at some point. 

Mackenzie "Mac" Elliott and her three best friends have been playing "Wedding Day" since they were children. The game leads to their future partnership in a wedding planning business. Mac gets to create a life she loves behind the lens of her camera. When a regularly scheduled consultation puts her in Carter McGuire's path her whole life plan is changed. 

Mac has never been a believer in love, something about watching her parents go through spouses like they are disposable has led her to be wary of anything that could be love. Will Carter be able to change her mind?

This book was an enjoyable and easy read. I found it hard to put down and quite…

Lizzy & Jane by Katherine Reay

I'm a big fan of Katherine Reay's work. Her stories are entertaining and deep. I took this a book to read on the beach, but I couldn't put it down and spent time reading instead of beaching. Lizzy and Jane are sisters. Estranged by the past and living on different coasts when Jane is diagnosed with cancer. Lizzy returns home for a visit and they struggle to reconnect in ways that will help heal. 

You can trust Reay to take you on an emotional journey with her books and Lizzy and Jane did not disappoint. The characters are real with their own passions, struggles and flaws. Their family is fractured, but the hope they have for rebuilding is alive. 

I loved this book and I think you will too. My only complaint was that it eventually ended.
